Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You could have quite a few things going on. The problem could be as simple as a bad spark plug or coil. With your description I'm wondering if you're actually feeling a lowered rev limiter due to lack of or improper cam sensor signal.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to check for fault codes. Do you know if any codes are setting?
